Product Description

From the Manufacturer

The high-powered 18-volt drill from Black and Decker offers faster drilling with a new Quick Connect Bit Change system, electronic level, Infinite Clutch, two-position gear box, and more torque than the competition. The patented Quick Connect Bit Change System, exclusive to the FireStorm drill line, speeds up drilling by allowing you to drill holes and drive screws without changing a single accessory. The System features a removable 3/8-inch keyless chuck that accepts both round and hex shank bits. The chuck is quickly and effortlessly removed to expose a screwdriving bit. The removable chuck is especially useful when making a pilot hole (pilot bit in the removable chuck) and then driving the screw (remove chuck to expose screwdriver bit) in a repetitive manner. The internal screwdriving bit holder features a pull and release collar that secures screwdriving bits or quickly adds 1/4-inch hex shank drill bits. To help with straight and level drilling, the FireStorm drills have an electronic level built into the end of the drill. When the drill is in a level position the LED display lights up. Another new and exclusive feature is the Infinite clutch, which offers a spectrum of clutch settings selected by visual reference guide of screw size. The FireStorm battery has been redesigned with a "spring-loaded" pack, which springs forward like a cassette with the push of a button, and then easily slides off. The drill is sold in an innovative storage box that mounts to the wall with clips to hold the drill and charger in place when not in use. The FSD182K-2 includes the drill, two batteries, charger, #2 Phillips bit, 1/8-inch hex shank drill bit, and wall mountable storage case.

This Drill is a Monster!
Jade Zebra
The only "flaw" I noticed was the chuck has a slight wobble because of it's ability to snap off.
Online Shopper
Makes a nice paperweight, but no good for drilling.

My husband wanted an 18V drill but he wasn't too impressed with
Black & Decker quality so I was looking at DeWalt etc... when I
read a review that this drill was just as good at 1/2 the cost.
They weren't kidding! He loves it! It's got power to spare,
easy and fast to charge and a dream to use and change bits. He
was thinking about returning it when he first got it but decided
to try it out first and that's all it took - you can't go wrong
with this drill if you are in the market for an 18V.

Verified Purchase
I ordered this drill because it was a good deal and I'm happy about it but if you are going to do a lot of drilling or screwing, buy a Porter Cole or DeWalt.
For starters, the fact that you can take the chuck off is nice because it conveniently holds the screw bit so you don't have to go back and forth installing and removing a drill bit then the screw bit. Unfortunately, as a result, you will notice that the chuck does not hold the drill bit perfectly still. You will notice a little wobble. In addition, the front of the drill is a little longer then it needs to be as a result of the removeable chuck.
The bit storage is on the base of the handle, right above the battery holder. Poor design because the bit does not snap in place. Rather, it is held their magnetically. I've dropped the bit several times while it was in the holder.
The torque setting is silly because of the rather large number of choices. Keep it simple I say.
The case is suppose to be wall-mountable. It's large, ugly and poorly designed. I would have perferred a simpler case that held just the drill, charger and two batteries.
The drill has a level light that it really useless. I would have perferred a smart quick charger instead.
This item was a good deal, especially with the [price] rebate. Without the rebate, I would tell you to get the Porter Cole or DeWalt cordless drill instead. The 14.4 volt Porter Cole was definitely better than this drill.

I recently purchased this drill..., looking for a decent back-up drill to my Dewalts. ... My first thought was this thing is going to suck really bad! An 18 volt for under $200.00. 'Well what the heck, as I was thinking my worst case scenario was return it, and exchange it for another Dewalt.
Surprise, Surprise!
Plugged it in, and began working on cutting boards and prepping the job for little over 3 hours (The recommended charge time for each battery is 3 hours.)
This thing was a monster! Drilled through the metal brackets no problem. The variable torque and high speed settings are outrageous. Popped the front end off with one hand and screwed in the 4 inch screws without a hitch.
Ok, but I needed a reality check. So I took out my Dewalt 958K.
Took out a scrap 4X4 and punched in a 6 inch drywall screw into it completely flush. The 18 Volt Black and Decker Firestorm took out that screw like butter.
To be completely fair to my personal benchmark test there was chuck slippage on the second pass using the Black & Decker. But I simply tightened it by hand again and it worked flawlessly.
The LED level was off by +/- .0003. I shot it with my laser leveler using a mirror and calibrating the level to the reflection.
I really dont see any reason for taking points off based on a +/- .0003 fluctuation. Trust me your screws will be aligned up to .05.
In conclusion for the price and the functionality of this unit I can't say enough great things about it.
Buy it! Even at the price listed here.
Power, performance and ease of use make it a really wonderful addition to any wood working arsenal.
My only concern is it's ability to hold up to constant use.

I bought this item because they had a good idea in the handy change over from drill to driver.But they skimped on the quality of the chuck.That is a shame because it defeated the whole purpose of the tool.I took the first one back to the store and got another one,but it was just as bad.Maybe they will come out with a good chuck later!

Really like the drill. Good balance, nice battery life, good power. I really like the removable chuck. However, I had the charger burn out after 6 months. Now, after a little over a year of HEAVY use, a gear (I presume) in the drive unit just stripped out while driving deck screws. Other than this, I've loved it. I'm buying another to replace it. Guess I'll just have lots of batteries and an extra chuck. I wonder if this isn't the same problem the other reviewers had. I know my problem isn't in the clutch, but in the drive train as I can hear the gear trying to catch. Hope they didn't use plastic gears....

I purchased this drill about 10 months ago for the incredible price of [$$$] on clearence at Home Depot. I was looking at the Dewalts but decided for [$$$], this is a steal. Overall the drill has plenty of power and feels good in your hand when in use. The removeable chuck is a good ideal but it really takes away from the quality of the drill. The chuck has a tendency to slip and I also notice a slight wobble. Another thing I wish is that it came with a 1 hr charger versus a 3 hr charger. Overall, it's a good drill for home projects and has plenty of power. For [$$$] bucks I can't complain too much. After all, where are you going to find a 18v drill for that price.
